Ingredients

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 10 slices brioche bread

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add the pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  • Add about ½ tablespoon of butter to the pan and allow it to melt and coat the bottom. (use more if needed depending on the size of you pan.
  • Dip one piece of bread into the egg-pumpkin mixture. Then flip it to coat the second side.
  • Quickly place it carefully to the preheated and buttered pan. Repeat with other slices that will fit in the pan.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until it is golden brown on the bottom and then gently flip it over and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
  • Keep slices warm by heating the oven to 175-200° F and placing a wire rack in the oven. Using a plate may make the slices soggy.

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
Use regular white bread, honey wheat bread or any favorite bread instead of the Brioche bread.
Use any milk of choice, fat free, low-fat or a non-dairy milk like almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, etc.
Use pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
In place of pumpkin pie spice, use ½ teaspoon cinnamon
Use maple syrup, honey, brown sugar or coconut sugar in place of white sugar, if desired.
Use non-stick cooking spray or canola or vegetable oil instead of butter, if preferred
